    Hi,

    Do you mean the list of others computers on your network, that are not shortcuts you've created?

    Or do you mean there are shortucts that show up in the list that you want to remove?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    You can do that by following these instructions:

    * Quit Fetch if it's open (very important to make sure Fetch is not running).
    * Open the Applications folder.
    * Open the Utilities folder.
    * Open the Terminal application.
    * At the prompt, type:

    defaults write com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch BonjourEnabled -bool false

    (You should probably copy and paste that line to avoid typos.)

    Then open Fetch again, and the computers should not be listed.

    Thanks,

    Thankyou Scott. Consider it a feature request to put an option in the prefs to do this.
    Cheers,
